THE PERFECT MODEL

What is the remedy for an apparently limited life? How can perfection, and freedom from sickness, sin, and fear, be attained?

Mary Baker Eddy answers these questions when she compares mankind to a sculptor looking at his model in order to mold the perfect form. "What is the model before mortal mind?" she asks in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 248). "Is it imperfection, joy, sorrow, sin, suffering? Have you accepted the mortal model?'" She adds: "The world is holding it before your gaze continually. The result is that you are liable to follow those lower patterns, limit your life-work, and adopt into your experience the angular outline and deformity of matter models." Then she admonishes, "We must form perfect models in thought and look at them continually, or we shall never carve them out in grand and noble lives."
